Original art "Lemonoude" by Kristin West
she features precious 1970's vintage organic lemongrass from Zanzibar (husbanded these years by the legendary John Steele) coupled with rare Malaysian oud. Sparkling fresh lemon notes twinkle during the dry-down due to the absence of citrus oils in the formulation.
Finally - a citrus fragrance that will never spoil! Ordinary citrus oils turn a perfume rancid within a few years due to oxidation, so Christi designed her lemon blossom accord from noble notes of verbena, melissa, vintage lemongrass and natural ionones distilled from lemongrass. These materials mature magnificently in the bottle in consort with the natural grape spirits and the freshest parts of the lemon bouquet are preserved therein.
For women, men and everyone in between. she is a perfume for adepts of artisan perfumery, initiates of magical aromatherapy (lemongrass and oud are mildly narcotic/psychoactive) and collectors of vintage perfumes. Cruelty free, but not vegan.
